Cook time: 15 minutes
Yields: 1 serving
Number of ingredients: 14
Ingredients:
  • 5 cups filtered water
  • 3-4 tablespoons Assam black tea
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks
  • 2-3 star anise
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 8 green cardom pods
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup chopped ginger root
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
How to cook:
  1. Crush whole spices (a course grind is all that's needed) using a mortar and pestle.
  2. Dry toast spices in a sauce pan over low heat on the stove for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Watch carefully and stir frequently so spices do not burn.
  3. Add all the water, chopped ginger and nutmeg to the saucepan with the spices.
  4. Bring to a boil and immediately reduce the heat and simmer the spices and water for 5-10 minutes.
  5. After the spices have simmered, return the mixture to a boil and then remove from the heat.
  6. Stir in the loose tea.
  7. Let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes. (Note: Do not over steep the tea as this will cause it to become bitter.)
  8. As soon as the tea has finished steeping, immediately pour it through a strainer into a large glass bowl or pitcher.
  9. It's important to have a strainer and bowl ready so the concentrate can be strained as soon as the tea has finished steeping.
  10. While the chai concentrate is warm, add sweeteners of your choice. For example, stir in granulated sugar, dark brown sugar, honey and maple syrup.
  11. Additionally, stir in vanilla extract.
  12. Let the chai concentrate cool down at room temperature. You can also cool it in the refrigerator but this may cause the tea to become a little cloudy.
  13. Once the chai tea concentrate has cooled pour it into a glass bottle and store in the refrigerator.
  14. To make a hot or iced chai tea latte, combine equal portions of the homemade concentrate and milk.
  15. For an iced chai latte pour chai concentrate into a cup with iced and add milk.
  16. A hot chai latte is made by warming up the concentrate and pouring steamed milk into it. Some milk foam can be scooped on top, as well.
  17. The type of milk is optional. 2% dairy milk makes a creamy latte, skim or whole milk, or half and half, some sweetened condensed milk, almond milk, oat milk and more.

Cuisine: Indian
Number of ingredients: 11
Ingredients:
  • 1-inch knob ginger
  • 1-2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 star anise
  • 5 cloves
  • 4 dried edible roses
  • 7 cardamom pods
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (freshly grated)
  • 5 cups water
  • 5 tsp black tea leaves
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

How to cook:
  1. In a mortar and pestle, crush the knob of ginger into chunks to release the juices and expose more surface area. Add the cinnamon sticks, star anise, cloves, roses, cardamom pods, black peppercorns, and ginger into the mortar and pestle and lightly crush them so they release their oils. Lastly, use a microplane to grate a bit of nutmeg.
  2. Transfer all of the spices from the mortar and pestle to a medium sized pot. On medium heat, dry roast the spices for a minute, or until they're fragrant.
  3. Pour the water in with the spices and bring it to a light rolling boil for 3-5 minutes, or until fragrant.
  4. At this point, add in the black tea leaves and mix really well. Simmer the spices with the black tea for 5 minutes. Be careful not to boil it for too long, otherwise it will be very bitter.
  5. Remove the pot from heat and pour in the sugar. Stir until the sugar has fully dissolved.
  6. Allow the spices and tea to steep in the hot water for at least 15 minutes. Then, strain the chai concentrate into a sanitized pitcher with a lid. Store in the fridge for up to five days.
  7. Use a 1:1 ratio of concentrate to milk. The concentrate can be served steamed, heated, or chilled.
